Great to have all the info I need to hand in an emergency, would recommend.
Clinical veterinary practice: the satisfaction of knowing that you have done the best for your patients; isn’t that what we all want?
Emergency medicine can be busy and stressful with sometimes many seriously ill or injured patients. When managing these patients you need the convenience of quick reliable information. What is more convenient than your phone in your pocket or your tablet?
This is where the KIMBA Veterinary Emergency Medicine Small Animal app comes in.
Got a dog in hypovolaemic shock from acute haemorrhagic diarrhoea syndrome? Need a quick reminder of cardiovascular perfusion assessment? What about guidelines on fluid resuscitation and a fluid dose calculator?
Got a tomcat with urethral obstruction (“blocked cat”)? Need a quick reminder of management priorities? What about how to treat clinically significant hyperkalaemia including drug doses and a dose calculator?
WHAT FEATURES DOES THE APP OFFER?
Drug dose calculators:
• Single doses
• Single agent infusions
• Multiagent infusions, including separate morphine-lidocaine-ketamine (MLK) calculator
Fluid therapy calculators:
• Bolus calculator
• Infusion calculator
• Most commonly used emergency medicine drugs with doses, routes and extra comments
• Separate searchable canine and feline formularies

• Clinical image gallery including radiographs and ECG strips
The app is downloaded to work offline offering guaranteed reliability irrespective of your practice’s internet connection.
WHO IS THE APP FOR?
This app is for veterinary surgeons and nurses/techs working in small animal/mixed practice. It will be most valuable to those dealing with emergency patient. But oh wait, isn’t that all veterinary practices?! The calculators and formularies are especially useful regardless of how many emergency patients you see.
The app will also be very helpful for veterinary students (doctors, nurses/techs) as a learning resource and clinical tool. Including in those stolen moments between seeing a case and having someone quiz you on it. We’ve got your back!

This is amazing! I wish I'd had access to it sooner. Succinct, concise and logical outlay of information, app is easy to navigate and has just the right amount of informative for emergency cases. Hope this will make on call a bit less stressful!
When you realise how much is in this App it gets very exciting. A great all-in-one resource and exceptionally good value.
as a new grad vet this has helped me a lot with ECC cases
This is an awesome app for all vets and nurses! Especially useful is the CRI calculator and reminders/tips for emergency procedures. Recommended!!
Fantastic app. Use it constantly. Definitely worth the money!
Brilliant app! Very useful for reducing stress levels on night/weekend shifts! Clear, concise summary of all things ECC. I highly recommend this.
Really easy to use and reassuring app when you need a solution pronto. A must have for any vet in general practice!
Great resource, loads of information and if I know Shailen I am sure there will be regular updates/improvements. Well worth the money. Thanks so much!
I befriended Shailen on Facebook having been taught by him at RVC on the ECC service.
The app, expensive as far as apps go, but cheap compared to textbooks, seemed like a great resource for a vet in practice. Having had a brief test of it, it is well designed and logically organised.
Look forward to having it on hand when next on call! Thank you for designing it.
There is surely a massive market for authoritative veterinary apps, please support anyone's quest to provide them!
Very handy app. Quicker to navigate than a book which is a bonus on a busy shift. The CRI calculator and the compendium are very useful features too. Good balance between compact format and the amount of information on each topic
Great app. Vast amount of information available in an user friendly form. Handy, convenient and mobile information, no need to google, scan through textbooks or call colleagues in a panic over cases especially in the middle of the night! Great prompts even for the experienced vet. Indispensable for the ECC vet, but also to all vets, nurses, students and others in the profession.
A most excellent tool, a Pandoras box of all things ECC. A comprehensive guide on bread and butter ecc procedures to the more nitty gritty. The image gallery makes this stand out and will be most useful to have alongside you whilst on shift. It is a handbook in its own right. A one stop shop. I highly recommend this to any vet/rvn/vet tech and veterinary students. Well done Shailen! And thank-you.
Wow what an amazing app. So much content at your fingertips covering all emergency situations. Love the CRI calculator, so quick and easy to use. Thank you Shailen for producing such a useful app!
Fantastic and very convenient pocket guide for anyone who sees emergency cases. Lots of useful information at the tips of your fingers. Great help for when you need a quick reminder on what to do or to refresh your memory when you have time to kill. It's like having a 5-minute consult book in an app! The calculator and formulary is great. The formulary is a little cumbersome as it needed an extra step to get to the dosages. Nevertheless, this is highly recommended as a vet in practice.
This is a superb emergency and critical care diagnostic tool. The more you delve into the menu, the more delighted you become at the comprehensive, yet succinct information on display. The first of its kind, it has to be an essential for vets, student vets, RVN's and techs alike. It's like having an emergency and critical care handbook, with added calculators and a formulary to boot, in the palm of your hand. There is also a great little image gallery, displaying no less than 68 pictures, ranging from blood cell pathology and abnormal ECG traces through to diagnostic radiographic images and ultrasonography. Can't recommend enough. Another little gem from Shailen Jasani.
Brilliant! Exactly what you need in the middle of the night or a weekend on call. I can see the paediatric section being especially useful and the CRI calculator will certainly be a god-send. The app has a logical format, is easy to use and practical tips are plentiful. Bring on the emergencies! :D
